Manager Scotty Ash has a wide variety of gift ideas in all price ranges. There is a nice selection of gift ideas that were made in South Carolina, not the least of which are a selection of tapestry pillows with various designs. One of those designs is the palmetto tree; the pillow design is complemented by a throw, table runners and other decorative accessories. There is also a wide variety of South Carolina pottery from Landrum, Rock Hill and other locations.

If food strikes your fancy, there's plenty to be had: barbecue sauces, jams, preserves and other delectable goodies are available. And they're all Certified South Carolina products.

For the bookworm, Scottie has stocked many titles with a wide selection on both the Civil War and the American Revolution. There is also a good selection of travel books as well.

In the clothing department, fleece vests with the Palmetto tree logo are a popular item as are men's neckties, including a palmetto and crescent in Christmas red and green. Other clothing items, such as polo shirts, are also available.

Scottie points out that there is still time to send Christmas cards and she has several with a South Carolina theme, including a South Carolina themed 'Twelve Days of Christmas.' There is also one of Santa flyiong the SC flag from his sleigh.

As mentioned earlier, the Exchange is currently in temporary quarters and Scottie hopes to move into their larger, permanent quarters sometime this spring.
